Justice Goddard - Previous Chair of IICSA Comments on the SOSA Interim Report "Looking For A Place To Call Home"

"Since acknowledging safe receipt of your interim report, I have briefly skimmed through it as I was very keen to get an immediate sense of it, whilst realising that I would need a considerable block of undisturbed time in order to sit down quietly to examine and absorb it in detail and assess its import.  What I can however say, on even an initial brief skim, is that the scale and magnitude of the cruelty and depravity of the events so graphically set out in the report is utterly appalling and beyond heart-rending.   The report also reflects the huge amount of careful and detailed research that has been carried out over many months and years. The report is cogent and compelling but is also succinct and to the point, which is important.  Identifying the critical issues against a graphic background and making the points so clearly, supported by factual case studies, is the absolutely correct way in which to found any claim for compensation or redress. I realise compensation will not be the only - or necessarily the primary purpose - of the work.  Nevertheless, acknowledgment of criminal wrongdoing against defenceless children by financial redress as well as by apology and the provision of ongoing remedial support, will be very important for the SOSA survivors."
